    Man, it's been a while...
    I can honestly say it's been far too long since I've been around these parts. I still have a lot of models, and might start getting back in to the swing of things. I got to looking at pictures of my previous builds and I'm getting that itch again...

    How's everybody doing???

    Terry Labonte 1984 Monte Carlo SS
    Alright, so a good friend of mine has given me the task of building him a tribute build in memory of his father who he says worked on Terry Labonte's Monte Carlo, seen in the 1984 era. Being that his father worked on the cars, and the fact that his father started building the model, he had also written down a couple notes pertaining to correct colors.

    Specifically, he noted that the roll cage is red and netting is blue.

    If the cage is red, would the floor and undercarriage also be red? I'm trying to be accurate with the colors on this and need some help.

    photos for reference: https://www.google.com/search?q=AH-1Z+Viper&es_sm=122&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=GJwaVcDaHouzoQTM6YDYCw&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1280&bih=920#tbm=isch&q=terry+labonte+1984

    thanks in advance for any tips.

    i had Jameston custom mix a paint for me - the price is awesome for airbrush ready paints, and the paint match is also good. i'm happy with the results so far.

    i've seen people use a silver paint pen to paint trim, then BMF over that. apparently it's meant for those cases if the BMF messes up, then the silver underneath offsets that or something.

    doh.

    ok - i guess i need a new hood lol
  10. wgflatliner added a post in a topic Questions about louvers   

    the dry transfers are a little too small for the 58 washboard hood. I'll check out the sheet styrene when i get home and see if i can get it to work.

    thanks

    i tried the scribing process, but the louvers on the top don't match the louvers under the hood. so it's in need of all new louvers. skip, i'll check that other thing out.
  12. wgflatliner added a post in a topic Questions about louvers   

    I'm working on a 58 vette and thought it'd be a good idea to open up the vents on the hood.

    needless to say, now i have a big squarish hole on the hood where the louvers used to be lol..

    so how would/should i go about creating new louvers? what thickness sheet styrene would be to scale?

    as far as cure times: get a dehydrator and set it in there a couple hours and call it good.
  14. wgflatliner added a post in a topic mom and pop vs. big hobby shop   

    i like a combination of LHS and online. LHS for the local groups, builds, and bonding, etc. Convenience of getting stuff like paints and stuff on a whim is nice.

    but i also like the online experience for the fact that i can look for something and chances are, somewhere in the world, it WILL be available.
  15. wgflatliner added a post in a topic So why do you or we stash kits?   

    i'm thinking about the completed builds here. i'm just running out of room! i'd like to get some decent builds done before i start just giving them away. i'd hate to send poor builds to anybody with the knowledge that i was the person that sent them.

    hope that makes sense
